This year will mark Reba McEntire’s impressive 17th time hosting the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Reba McEntire is set to host the 2024 ACM Awards for the 17th time, continuing her longstanding association with the event. The announcement was made on April 25 by the Academy of Country Music, Prime Video, and Dick Clark Productions.

In addition to hosting duties, McEntire will grace the stage with a performance of new music during the live broadcast on May 16 at 8 p.m. ET from the Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas.

“I am tickled to pieces to get to host the ACM Awards for the 17th time! What an honor to have been part of the past, present, and now the future of the Academy of Country Music with Amazon Prime Video,” said Reba McEntire in a statement. “I can’t wait to get to Texas and see everybody on May 16th!”

Reba McEntire, renowned for her role in “Reba,” has earned 16 ACM Awards of her own and holds the record for the most nominations in the female artist of the year category.

This year’s ACM Awards nominations were dominated by Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, and Maren Morris, with notable contenders in the coveted Entertainer of the Year category including Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Chris Stapleton, and Lainey Wilson.

Jelly’s nomination for the night’s biggest award marks a significant achievement, as he becomes the first artist since Billy Ray Cyrus in 1993 to transition from never being nominated at the ACMs to securing a spot in the Entertainer of the Year category.

“I spent my whole life just thinking that what I was doing would never be heard or seen,” shared the “Need a Favor” singer in an interview with PEOPLE earlier this month. “I almost gave up on any dream of this thing ever being like it is now, and man, is it just incredible to be in the middle of it. I’m grateful.”

For those interested in attending the 2024 ACMs, a limited number of tickets are available for purchase on SeatGeek. Additionally, fans can now stream the official awards show playlist on Amazon Music.
